Christina is a Senior Research Fellow within the Health Workforce and Systems theme in Health Sciences. She has been researching nurse staffing since 2017 using quantitative methods such as multi-level regression and simulation modelling. This work has been funded predominantly by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR).

Christina’s background is in Operational Research, the branch of Mathematics that uses advanced quantitative techniques to help make better decisions. She is interested in how Operational Research techniques can be applied to decisions in healthcare, particularly staffing decisions.
